Default Could another country invade the USA? what if they just focused on Washington DC?

I got to thinking what if China just focused on invading all the main buildings (including the White House and the Pentagon) in Washington DC and started taking everyone there hostage. All the major politicians and higher ups... possibly including the President and his family.

You don't so much worry about any other major cities... just Washington DC.


You start with a few EMPs, send out a major computer virus, and then you take over Washington DC... that would be my strategy.

If America retaliates with a nuke they lose everyone in Washington DC.


obviously there would need to be motive for such an aggressive invasion (9/11 being an inside job perhaps), and the UN would have to support it if not before the strike but soon after(months).

and Russia would have to be China's ally on this. China could just send North Korea's troops to do job... and once they all get killed they send their own, and then Russian troops.

Oh and I'm sure Venezuela and Cuba would love to join in the action by sending a few of there own troops to keep America Occupied.

Do you know how incredibly difficult that would be? Nearly impossible with the protection they have.

But of course we could be invaded no doubt.

All of them would be forced to deal with Middle East bull shit.


But yea, you're right... most of the countries that are members of NATO would have to support it.

You could also have a few people working on the inside... $hit can always be a conspiracy.

British would have to support the invasion as well... in the end it would be there decision.

So, China and Russia might just have to invade London as well... get are there higher ups in the Royal Family, and the elite scum bags in their government.

They would definitely have to kidnap the president without using much violence... and all the members of it's administration... maybe a few key figures from the Bush administration also... and other State Governors. Possibly attack a few military bases and focus on a few USA bases that are over seas.

A lot of us wouldn't just have to witness it, but participate. I'd imagine there'd be a draft if things get out of hand like that.

There's a gun for every man, woman, and child and DC is known as a violent city.

If foreigners invaded they'd get gunned at by gang bangers and policemen alike.

Think about how many violent idiots are just waiting on an excuse to use their firearm to legally kill or hurt someone...

An invasion of the USA would get record ratings. Think of the entertainment value. Lets do this.

There is no way another country could get close enough to mount an attack and invade the US. They would be wiped out as soon as they mobilized their navy in our waters.

We spend more on our military than like the next 30 countries combined. Traditional armies are not a threat to us. Only terrorism (no real enemy) is.

What if China had been secretly funding an operation that placed as many soldiers as possible (without being exposed) in the United States the past 10 years.

So all these Chinese folks walking around in civilian clothes can one day travel to same city and take it over with automatic weapons when the time is right.

I bet they could of found a way to get over 10,000 of their troops in the USA by now... and that's my lowest estimate... because in reality they could over 50,000... but that would be risky.

They all just meet up in Washington DC and the capitals of a few key states... kidnap a few key celebrities... hold them as hostage.

America would find it's self in a horrible situation if it decided to try and attack anyone.
